The anodic oxidation of propane in phosphoric acid has been studied on a platinum black electrocatalyst in the temperature range 100-150C. A rotating cylinder electrode was used for obtaining reaction orders with respect to propane and will be used in studies of other saturated hydrocarbons, now in progress. The purpose is to extend the present mechanistic study of hydrocarbon oxidation to various isomers of saturated hydrocarbon containing six carbon atoms. This will yield important parameters pertinent to fuel cell performance in terms of structural and molecular weight effects.
